Preparing your children to prosper in a complex and rapidly evolving world, is an ongoing challenge for parents and educators alike. Milligan House Child Care Centre, in Milligan Street, Carey Park is well known for providing high quality care in a creative, stimulating and supportive family environment.
Over the past few weeks, Milligan House Child Care employees have participated in a series of Team Empowerment workshops afterhours at the Centre.
Developed and delivered by Corporate First Aid Australia, Team Empowerment workshops enable participants to raise their awareness of what shapes and governs individuality and what defines and creates team excellence.
Participants identify their values, gain a greater understanding of their own and other people’s personalities, explore their learning and thinking styles, improve communication skills and discuss the role of emotional intelligence in community services workplace settings.
‘Directors are often time poor and this essential technique to manage performance and nurture excellence is overlooked’, said Tegan Roberts, CFAA’s Strategic Business Manager. ‘I have in numerous leadership roles, applied practical strategies from the insight gained by exploring individual preferences and how they effect team dynamics. I believe that this has greatly contributed to those teams winning state and national awards’.
‘Our team recently completed the ‘Team Empowerment’ workshops with Corporate First Aid Australia. We found the training extremely interesting and useful. We all learned something about each other and more importantly ourselves. The term ‘team empowerment’ had some of us thinking we would learn how to fix issues within a team, but what we learned was far more useful. We learned who we are, what is important to us individually, how we fit into our team and how different personalities work together to make a successful team’, reflected Marg Keeler, Assistant Director /Qualified Educator.
‘The course was delivered over a three-week period and the points raised at the training provoked much thought and discussion throughout the week. Our facilitator, was knowledgeable and confident in her presentation and our staff would often comment on how quickly the two-hour workshop went. We would highly recommend this training to any workplace’, she said.
